Third pillar of the day and the first that didn't involve getting soaking wet. As logged previously pillar and surrounds in excellent condition, shame the view was only down to 100 metres or so.

Easy cycle down unsealed road. Met 83 year old Fred tending his creation. He has landscaped the area as a memorial to mine workers who died at work. What an interesting and amazing guy. Great views.

After reading the past comments about this possibly being the best kept trig in UK, thought I would take a look. On approach to the trig, noticed this guy beavering away with his trowel and paintbrush. After a brief chat, he explained that he is a local guy, and that this was his favourite viewpoint. After giving up walking at the ripe old age of 83 he had basically 'adopted' the trig and with the permission of the local landowner set about creating all you see before you today. Everything barring the Trig, i.e. the boulders, stones, gravel, kerbstones, flagstones, sand, cement he has carried up here in his red bag from the local surroundings and meticulously built & assembled this viewpoint. Even the bench (which he incidentally bought) owes its existence to him. Take a bow Fred!

A trigpoints with its own cairn and seat. Good views out to sea. Logged with the android app. If there was a best kept trigpoint competition this would stand a good chance of winning. Someone has put a lot of effort in here.

This trig has been adopted as a memorial to the miners who lost their lives in the Cleveland ironstone mines. Now has new coat of paint, gravel garden, white marker stones and large stone cairn. Shame the access to it was through the farm at the end road which has a distinctly ify aroma!

Easy to find in gap in hedge on side of main track. The field of thistles was not appreciated on my approach route though! Good condition with plug intact. 5th and last log of the day and a sprint home as I was already late.
